WEIRD NEWS WEDNESDAY: Lose Weight The Easy Way—Go To Bed!


article-1263801-090346D0000005DC-346_468x641I tried this experiment the other night. I weighed myself before I went to bed. I weighed133.5 pounds. The next morning at 5 a.m. when my body was telling me it was time to get up—which it was way off. Let’s face it, I am not a morning person, and never will be.

So when I weighed myself obsessively yes at 5 a.m. after peeing, and before drinking any water, liquids or eating anything, I weighed 130 pounds. I literally lost 3.5 pounds overnight. After walking around the house, looking outside, not seeing twilight happening, I figured it still was the middle of the night. So I did what most rational people do, I went back to bed.

Hey, I work my own schedule now, and if I do not have to be up in what is considered by most sane people to be the middle of the night–except in June and July, when it is getting lighter outside at 5a.m.

Somehow I lost 3.5 pounds is just six hours. Of course, when I weigh myself later on today as in after eating three meals, drinking water and ice tea I will gain the weight back.

All I can figure out is water weight  left my body for a coupe of hours. And on an empty stomach , I weigh less. Plus I remember discovering awhile back that it is natural to weigh less early in the morning and people naturally weigh more later on in the day.

Lesson learned—I will never weight myself before going to bed, but early in the morning in the twilight hours, when my body, as well as yours do this magnificent thing and weigh less than during the daytime.


Throughout the day your body weight can fluctuate from 2 to 4 lbs. Generally, you weigh less in the morning than in the evening. This is due to the things you consume during the day and the various functions of your body while you sleep. Boost your confidence by hopping on the scale when you first wake up, but lose weight overall through a healthy lifestyle. Momzinga.com.
